    It's an Andyson alright... A 2-series dreck, overrated by what, 250-300W?

    The unit purports to be the same platform as this guy (an M-series member), but that's an outright lie.

    It'll fall flat on its face, I just wanna know how badly
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Doesn't Linkworld have their own factory?

    Maybe they're just cranking out power bricks.

    This unit is most certainly an Andyson.

    I have actually no idea what they actually build in their own factory.. I've never seen a Linkworld product which really impressed me. That's why I never looked into it. I guess you also never cared about what they actually do

    Well my thoughts are Andyson has EoL'd this platform a long time ago. And Linkworld has their own fab. So yeah, Andyson may be making it for them, but…why? Linkworld can just buy a license and make it much cheaper by their own.

    Anyway, it is definitelly Andyson platform, whoever actually makes it.

    It's Andyson built too as even the "warranty void", etc. labels are standard Andyson.

    Andyson can EOL whatever they want... until someone else comes along and asks for it.

    Good example: Seasonic still makes the EOL'd XP2 for Corsair's AX.

    XP2 is EoL'd?

    Anyway, thanks for the intel, will update the review accordingly.
